About

So I’m Lucy, a 40 something old who was bitten by the allotment bug a few years ago.  Having spent a good few years moving around the world, getting my allotment was my way of putting down roots for the long term.

Along with travel, I love cooking and I love growing – cooking with the freshest possible ingredients grown with love and care in as an organic way as I can manage gives a satisfaction like no other and total taste explosion!

PurpleBug is a pretty much my ramblings split into growing pages, a recipes section and the blog that shares my latest successes, failures, tips I have heard on site, weather updates and anywhere else my mind takes me…

So have a click about, a read, a bit of a surf and I hope you enjoy!
